The A4 is 1kg lighter than the Delta 4 and 500g lighter than the previous version, the A3. It is not only lighter, it is a much lighter wing, its significantly reduced inertia improves handling and gives you more sensitivity and agility for better lift exploitation and easier behaviour in collapses. Of course, it is also more comfortable to carry!
Intuitive and effective angle of attack control, improved profile and optimised internal structure make the Alpina 4 an impressive gliding cross country machine in turbulence. Its structure, the strongest we have developed, maintains the integrity of the profile even in the heart of turbulence, avoiding the loss of performance associated with deformation along the chord.
New "ACR" System

The new Active Control Risers (ACR), inherited from the Mantra, allow direct control of the angle of attack without changing the camber of the profile, even in accelerated flight. By operating both the B's and C's, the ACR allows the wing to be controlled like a 2-line while keeping the comfort of a 3-line architecture.

The Alpina 4 is aimed at intermediate to advanced pilots who fly 70 to 100 hours per year and who have already done a SIV. Its ease of use and high level of passive safety make it accessible to pilots who wish to change category. Experienced pilots who want to fly with a greater margin of safety will find great satisfaction in a wing with top class cross country performance.


Brand

Ozone

Ozone is one of the leading paragliding brands, both in terms of the range of products it offers and in terms of innovation. A rebel spirit, going off the beaten track, Ozone likes to surprise and not let itself be influenced. Its designers go to the end of their ideas....Their competition wings are formidable, the strings harnesses minimalist to the extreme, the ultralight cocoons astonishing, Ozone creates the surprise, and constantly pushes the limits of the possible.

Performance sails inC belong to the cross-country category. Sharpened for long-distance flights, they are more demanding and are aimed at experienced pilots. They offer excellent glide performance. Their sharp shark nose leading edge allows them to cross variations in the air mass without slowing down, and to have efficient handling and immediate acceleration in accelerated flight. In their quest for performance and to reduce drag, most of them are now 2-line models.

What are the two lines?

Initially, a paraglider resembled a large spider's web: there were 4 rows of lines (in addition to the brake halyards). Some designers began to trim the lines to reduce drag. Then the race for performance gradually led to the elimination of lines... So, after the 3 lines are born 2 lines... This modification is not without consequences: less drag, more performance, but also more demanding. Initially reserved for competition models, this modification will soon be found on virtually all 'performance' paragliders (EN-D). If you already have a C rating, and you often fly accelerated, and feel limited by the performance of your wing, then this type of glider is probably for you. Some C paragliders (with or without 2 lines) are on sale and available for test flights at the paragliding shop of Grands Espaces. This is still the best way to form an opinion.
